FEET OF FINES FOR ESSEX. 



PREFACE. 

THE nature of a Fine was explained by Mr. R. E. G Kirk in our first volume 
(1899) ; and since then various features of it have been studied in greater detail 
by Mr. G. J. Turner in Huntingdonshire Fines (1913), and by Canon C. W. Foster 
in the second volume of Lincolnshire Fines (1920). These may be referred to for 
general knowledge of the subject, and it seems unnecessary to repeat the 
information here. There are, however, some points in the present volume which 
are worthy of notice. 

The writ of covenant begins to supersede others ; the writ of warranty of 
charter, which had been the more popular, is now less used and appears for the 
last time here in 1326 (p. 225) and not again for Essex before the reign of 
Henry VII. The payment of a sore sparrowhawk as consideration does not 
occur after 1314 (p. 159). 

The subject matter of the Fine has become simpler and almost stereotyped 
in a small number of forms; there is little elaboration of detail except in the 
case of settlements, generally indicated by the absence of payment of con- 
sideration, which occur in increasing proportion. Manors are named more often, 
and when not named can frequently be identified as such. 

The sums of money mentioned as consideration are invariably exact numbers 
of pounds, marks or shillings, and evidently fictitious. The acreages, however, 
and the number of messuages, etc., appear to be still fairly accurate; although 
round numbers may be suspected as having been given to make certain of 
covering smaller amounts. Thus, the distribution of meadow agrees well with 
the known situation of streams, moor and heath are rare, and the scarcity of 
woodland in Dengey hundred is confirmed. Alder occurs only in a belt east of 
Bardfield, Stebbing and Witham to the coast and Stour. 

During the period covered by this volume we have the commencement of 
another large series, that of the Notes of Fines, which were the revised drafts 
from which the Feet and counterparts were engrossed. They appear to have 
been made at earlier dates, but not then thought worth preservation. The 
series is imperfect ; but it sometimes happens that a defective Foot can be 
supplemented by the Note, and there are a few Notes for which the corresponding 
Feet are missing. A facsimile (actual size) of a Note is shown in the frontis- 
piece, and its form can be compared with that of the Foot and counterparts of 
another Fine shown in the frontispiece to the first volume. 

There is also a third large series, that of the Concords of Fines, which are a 
still earlier stage in the preparation of the Fine ; but it is not continuous before 
the reign of Elizabeth, and not many earlier Concords are preserved The later 
Concords are chiefly interesting as containing signatures of the parties. 

In the 56 completed years of Henry III. the total number of Fines relating to 
Essex is 1,763, giving a yearly average of 31 5. Apart from Notes, the total is 
929 and the yearly average 27-3 for the 34 completed years of Edward I., and the 
total 1,117 and the yearly average 58 8 for the 19 completed years of Edward II. 



In the following reigns the yearly average falls until it reaches a minimum in the 
time of the Yorkist kings. It rises again under the Tudors, slowly at first and 
then rapidly at the time of the Reformation. 

The Court of Common Pleas was at York in the terms 
Trin. 26 Mich. 32 Edward I. 
Mich, and Hil. 13 Edward II. 
Trin. 15 Mich. 17 Edward II. 
but otherwise all Fines here calendared were levied at Westminster. 

In a few cases the Feet appear to have been wrongly marked, and to refer to 
another county. These are :

for this reason they are generally only useful for filling gaps or defects in that 
series. The first file for each county, however, contains Notes which have not 
been engrossed as Feet. The exact effect is doubtful, as it is not known whether 
the transactions were completed ; but they were certainly contemplated. Of the 
following Notes for Essex (Bundle i, File 10) the first half are undated, but 
apparently belong to the latter part of the reign of Kdward I., or possibly the 
beginning of Edward II. After them come others for Edward 11. At the end of

usually the names of their attorneys.
